A Tonic for Your Body and Mind

Surrounded by deep, lush mountains and green fields, Sancheong has been renowned for its medicinal herbs since ancient times. Good medicinal herbs were also found in Jirisan Mountain. Sancheong is also well known as the place where Heo Jun practiced medicine. The clear essence of Jirisan Mountain and the abundance of medicinal herbs are thought to be sufficient reasons for choosing Heo Jun. As a town famous for oriental medicine, Donguibogamchon was built at the foot of Wangsan Mountain to spread the wisdom of traditional oriental medicine. Donguibogam Village in Sancheong is broad and filled with various facilities. Surrounded by mountains, it is also proud of the scenery that makes you feel healed just by looking at it.

Things to Hear, See, Taste, and Enjoy

Donguibogam Village can be roughly divided into three parts. It is an exhibition hall where you can learn oriental medicine and medicinal herbs, various experience facilities, a restaurant specializing in medicinal herbs, and a natural oriental recreation forest. The exhibition hall is divided into the Oriental Medicine Museum, the San Chong Yak Herb Hall, and the anatomical cave inspired by the story of Heo Jun, who dissected his teacher Ryu Ui-tae. Experience facilities include an oriental medicine experience center, oriental medicine theme park, oriental medicinal herb experience theme park, Heojun pilgrimage trail, and oriental medicine maze park. Most of the facilities in Donguibogamchon are located here.

Do not have a misconception that Museum of Korean Medicine would be boring. As you get to know about Korean medicine associated with your body, you will see the mystery of the human body. In addition, you can acquire a constitution that you were not interested in and common sense of various oriental medicine.

The medical museum at Sancheong consists of “Essence (精), Energy (氣), and Spirit (神) Hall” and “Traditional Korean Medicine Experience Hall.” Essence, Energy, and Spirit Hall has more than 170 medicine-related relics on display, while the Experience Hall offers information on how to differentiate and combine medical herbs. Hemispheres and meridians have been made into audiovisual materials for better understanding and an old medical institution has been transformed into a set. In the Herbal Park, hundreds of medical herbs allow visitors to satisfy their curiosity.

At Dongdongjeon Hall, which is comparable to Geunjeongjeon Hall in Gyeongbokgung Palace, you can enjoy a thermal healing experience by lying on a heated bed made of hundreds of stones with heating while admiring Jirisan Mountain. You can also drink herbal tea and make scent bags using oriental medicinal ingredients such as Angelica, ginger, cloves, and mint.

After various activities, it is time to seek comfort in the forest. Heo Jun Trail is a walk along various scenes including a forest, herb garden, deer ranch and overpass. In autumn especially, when the white Siberian chrysanthemum is in bloom, it offers a magnificent view.

Time to Bring Good Luck into Your Life

Talking about this place, one thing must be mentioned: energy (氣). It is said that the energy of Baekdudaegan Mountain accumulates on Pilbong Mountain and Wangsan Mountain. Donguibogam Village, which is situated right there, has three huge stones that are full of energy: “Guigamseok,” “Seokgyeong” and “Bokseokjeong.” They are said to radiate health, luck and other positive energy and attract many people from all over the country. They come to train or meditate near the stones, do gymnastics and participate in the anti-aging experience program.

Let's enjoy a healing time by absorbing the energy emitted by the mysterious stones in Donguijeon Hall in the Gi Experience CenterKorean Medicine ‘Ki’ Experience Hall. Now that you feel the power and energy of therapy with your body, it is time to get closer to Korean traditional medicine.
